April Stradley, horticulturist

Duke Gardens is home to some impressive horticulture. Join staff expert April Stradley on a walk through the Gardens to see some of the special techniques, unusual plants, tricks of the trade and particular materials used that are incredible to behold but might not be feasible for the home gardener. You'll learn about plants that require special management to thrive or stay contained, landscapes that are resource intensive and garden elements that require professional skill to build or maintain. You'll also see examples of plants and gardening techniques that could make sense to try in your garden.
This is part of series exploring what Duke Gardens horticulturists do and don't recommend to try at home. This session will focus on overwintering tropical plants. Meet on the patio behind the Doris Duke Center.

Look for a session on Sept. 19 that focuses on home garden fruit and vegetable production. Sign up for one or more; each session is different.
